JWRC: Q&A: Sebastien Ogier and Julien Ingrassia.

Driver / co-driver: Sebastien Ogier and Julien Ingrassia (Citroen C2 S1600).



Press conference.


Q:
Sebastien, your third win of the season, extending your lead in the Drivers Championship. It's been a great event for you.

Sebastien Ogier:
Yes, for sure it was a very good week for us. We kept the lead of the Championship and now we need to finish in Catalunya.

Q:
It was a good battle between you and Martin Prokop. Were you on the maximum to catch him?

Julien Ingrassia:
It was a good battle, we enjoyed it. On Saturday morning, we showed that we could be faster than him and we would have liked him to finish. Anyway, it was a good fight.

Q:
When he retired there was a big gap behind you so you didn't need to push. Was it difficult to find a rhythm when you didn't have to fight?

SO:
At the start of the rally, it was a good battle with Martin which I would have liked to continue, but he had a problem. After he had that problem, it was easier for us. We didn't take any risks after that.

Q:
What do you have to do in Spain to clinch the title?

JI:
We know that we have to win there to win the title, but it won't be easy as all the drivers will be there.

Q:
There have been a lot of obvious comparisons between you and Sébastien Loeb – it must feel good to be compared to a World Champion?

SO:
I like it, because to be compared to the Champion is an honour for me, but I have to continue working and learn at every rally. In the future, I hope to have the same success, but it will be difficult as Sébastien is a great driver.
